Now that ETL's finally got me to bite the bullet when it comes to painting, I thought I'd keep a log of the Imperial Fists company I've been planning out for a couple of years now. The Imperial Fists were my first entry into the HH, following my first read-through of Mechanicum, where I loved the absolute pragmatism of Sigismund and Camba-Diaz as they bravely flew into the embrace of Mars just long enough to do an Italian Job on the Mk IV armours they'd been sent for.

 

Everything kind of died down for me hobbywise for a few years, until I decided to look at the Fists again, which combined with reading through the section on them in Extermination, made me decide to look at a group which had been one of the detachments most prominent in the battle of Roma, and had kept up many of the old traditions. That waned a little bit, and I had to shelve the original idea for a grey colour scheme with yellow sections in favour of the more traditional scheme.

 

First up is the Deredeo I'm painting for ETL. From the original undercoat of Corax White it's had a basecoat of Averland Sunset and then been airbrushed with Flash Gitz yellow. This was my first attempt ever at airbrushing, so no doubt it shows. ermm.gif I will admit to being a little stumped as to how to break up the yellow in sections, I've tried Abbadon Black on a terminator but it doesn't seem to fit to me. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

Started to paint it now, with Blackened Barrel on the gears, autocannon barrels, and the ammo feeds, with Bronze Barrel on the rings behind the muzzle and also on the buffers to the rear of the autocannons. What you can't see is the plate cover on each autocannon which has been painted with Abbadon Black as a way to break up the yellow. Obligatory Agrax Earthshade on the pallet/footstool as well, which has helped it look a little more worn.

Yep, just an application of corax white and averland sunset via spraycan, then two coats of flash gitz yellow over that. I originally tried painting yriel yellow over averland sunset and then applying flash gitz yellow as a highlight via brush, which was a method I saw in a video a few months ago, but it didn't look right, and when it comes to painting, I've a habit of "Wing it! And if that doesn't work, double wing it!"

 

This was actually taken last week.

And this is how it looks today!
